Kanye West Denies Claim That Taylor Swift Got Him Kicked Out of the Super Bowl

Kanye West and Taylor Swift have been feuding for years. It all started at the infamous “I’m gonna let you finish” moment, where West was the villain. He had absolutely no right to steal Swift’s award speech moment like that. Then, there was all the drama around the rapper’s single “Famous”. It was clear that the singer was in the wrong on that one, as a recorded video proved that Taylor approved Kanye’s lyrics before he recorded the song – which she vehemently denies. Well, the feud continues, and this time it’s about the Super Bowl.

The Claim

Anyone who watched the Super Bowl saw plenty of Taylor Swift, as she cheered on her boyfriend Travis Kelce who plays for the Kansas City Chiefs. Swift was joined by Ice Spice, Blake Lively, and other Hollywood names. However, rumor has it that Kanye West was supposed to be in all those camera shots too. According to former NFL player Brandon Marshall, West had bought seats right in front of Swift’s seats, so as to photobomb all her camera shots. Marshall said, “Kanye’s face was going to be there. He’s got a mask on with his logo on the mask – typical Kanye. Taylor Swift gets […] off, she boom boom makes a call or two. Everybody’s involved. He gets kicked out of the stadium!”

Is it True?

As of the time of writing, Swift hasn’t responded to the rumors, but Kanye has. A representative for the rapper said, “This is a completely fabricated rumor. It is not true.” To be clear, West was at the Super Bowl, and he was wearing a mask, so the only question is if he had planned on being in a different seat. On the one hand, Marshall has no reason to lie. On the other hand, at one point in the same interview, he confused Taylor Swift with Katy Perry, so he may have simply made another mistake. While the situation does seem on-brand for Swift, it’s not like West to remain silent if he’s been wronged. Something tells us that if the story were true, Kanye would’ve been talking about it on social media nonstop since the Super Bowl aired.

For that reason alone, we’re going to label this as fake news.
